Decorating with Portraits at Tatertots and Jello

Hi there!! I’m Jen from Tatertots and Jello. I’m so excited to be here.

I adore Kristen and love her blog. I have loved seeing all of the amazing ways that people can display their photos. I’d love to share my little Family Picture Space….

I have a little nook under my stairs in my family room. I love putting my family pictures there. The area was painted a dark brown color with pine cupboards underneath. I had stenciled the area but decided it needed a little lightening up.

So we thought the cupboards would be pretty painted white and we added some beadboard to the back.

I didn’t want to put any holes in the beadboard, so I hung the pictures with 3m Command Strips.

So when I want to change the area up in awhile, all I have to do is pull the strips off and it won’t damage the beadboard.

I hung our family pictures, plus a few other embellishments. I took a gold “H” letter and wrapped it with some Chevron fabric that matched the some pillow I made for my family room. And I also sprayed a garage sale frame turquoise for a pop of color. And added a couple bright plates with some vinyl. And then I made a little felt circle bunting and attached it to the top of the space with some gummy poster paste.

I love the white space with the bright pops of color. And it will be so easy to change up when I want a change. I know that about myself. I love to change things up!

Thanks Kristen for letting me be part of your awesome series.

I have learned so much!!

  8. Very striking! I love how the white brightens everything. It really makes the pictures stand out. Darling garland matches the colors in the photos too. Nicely designed Jen!
